Next game: 5 December at Oxley Golf Club

(Sorry for this late announcement.)

The final game for this year will be at Oxley Golf Club, 290 Boundary Road, Oxley, on Sunday 5 December, arrival at 5.45am (long after sunrise!) for tee-off at 6.00am. The number of the Pro Shop there is 1300 135 654 (I think).

Navigation to the course is straightforward: Either Ipswich Motorway to Blunder Rd, or Hellawell Rd-Learoyd Rd-Inala Ave to Blunder Rd, and then to Boundary Road.

Ian assures me the course is in excellent condition.

It seems that Ian (Mr Consistency) has the Player of the Year award all wrapped up, so I hope Paul is offering a second prize to keep the rest of us motivated!

As usual, please let me know asap if you wish to play. If you have to withdraw, again, please let me know asap.

Progress on the 2011 schedule is going well. More details soon.

Please send me any suggestions you have for attracting new members in 2011.

Look forward to seeing you at Oxley.

Keperra game - 7th November 2010

12 players turned up for what I suspect was a day some of us wished we hadn’t bothered.

The less said about the second nine holes (19 through 27) the better, perhaps in a few months these will be in a more acceptable condition, however I have to give my comments a little perspective and confess to an absolute shocker of a game for myself especially on that nine.

We (last group) must have spent more time searching for balls than actually playing them so the frustration levels just grew and grew.

Now the results:
1st place on 33 pts – Rodney Topor.
2nd place on 32pts – Ian Smith.
3rd place on 29pts – Janine Walker.

Ladies longest drive – Janine Walker.
Men’s longest drive – Ian Smith.
NTP on 25 (only one went off) – Rodney Topor.

Thanks to everyone who turned up, next game is at Oxley on the 6th December, hope to see lots of us there for the final game of the year.

Regards for now (Captain) Paul.
